There was a lot of problem of Drainage in the village and if we look towards the transportation facilities the village people were facing a lot of problems because there was no public bus facility provided there for the people.

When team talked to the Gram-Pradhan of the village and asked him about the problems. He conveyed that legal problems faced by farmers as Government has acquired the land for the development but the farmers haven’t received proper remuneration to what was promised to them.
There is only one school which is till 8th standard only and when students went there and have word with the teachers students got to know that parents are not aware for the education of their child, as the students are not in routine, they don’t attend the school on the daily bases. Teachers said that they didn’t get the support of the village people for the development of the school through the government provides stationary, midday meals, uniforms timely but as the parents are not concerned, the students didn’t use them properly.
There is a transportation problem also for school children as proper transportation is not there for the students. Another problem faced by the people is regarding the route which farmers have to take to reach their farms. Now all the roads have been blocked and only one route is there to exit the area due to which the farmers have to travel 5-6 km to reach their lands.
